They got the make-up wrong and she needs to have a little more meat on her bones... or should I say plastic on her frame. Slightly thicker.

It would probably be cool if she had your "do"

I'm wondering if they had any black female consultants on that project.

So for what I've gathered is no...They all seem to be be Indian or white

The designers are: Rachel Roy, Tory Burch, Albertus Swanepoel, Phillip Crangi, Kate Spade (represented by Deborah Lloyd), Monica Botkier, Betsey Johnson, Isaac Mizrahi, Alexis Bittar, Lorraine Schwartz, Justin Guinta for Subversive Jewelry, and Devi Kroell.
